The WaPo reports that David Brooks unloaded his $4 Million Dollar House That Hack Bought for just under $4.5 million.
New York Times columnist David Brooks sells his $4.5 million home in less than 48 hoursA tidy addition to the Brooks Nest Egg indeed; perhaps enough so that he can finally tell the Sulzberger dynasty "Fuck You!", give up the back-breaking drudgery and endless hours of exhausting research that are synonymous with writing 800 words of whatever-he-wants for the New York Times twice a week...
...and finally embark on that long trip across American so he can touch Indians.
Just like they did in Easy Rider!
Further down the column, the Post notes that while speculation regarding the dissolution of Mr. Brooks' marriage has continued for a year and a half, America's most ubiquitous moral scold and peripatetic Conservative lecturer on the importance of everybody else getting with the program and preserving our sacred social institutions at all costs, ain't answering any of your god damn nosy questions about his god damn marriage, thank you very much god damn it:
Brooks purchased the home with his wife, Sarah, for $3.95 million in July 2012. A year and a half later, the Reliable Source reported that the couple, married for 27 years, were divorcing. Currently there are no records of the Brooks divorce on file in D.C. court, and David Brooks did not return a call for comment.So there you have it.
Every possible lead exhausted; every possible source run down.
I mean, what is there left for a dogged reporter to do?
Except, perhaps, bothering to look at any publicly available video of Mr. Brooks' before November 2013 and any video of Mr. Brooks' after and checking out his left hand.
You know, the hand where the wedding ring goes?
